It's FUN! And the proceeds from the Festival will be donated to the Edward A. Myers Marine Conservation Fund, established in 2003. Money from the fund is used to sponsor marine education and conservation projects throughout the Lincoln County area. The Fund was established jointly by The Pemaquid Oyster Company and The Schooner Landing Restaurant & Marina.
Ed Myers was a pioneer in Aquaculture in Maine. In 1975, Myers obtained Maine aquaculture lease No. 1 to raise mussels at Abandoned Farm in South Bristol. He went on to
devote his life to sustainable aquaculture and became a mentor to many of those still
working on the Damariscotta River today. He gave The Pemaquid Oyster Company guidance as they grew, what have become to be, award winning oysters. The foundation is a way of giving back to others as he did so well.
